Our History

Nick & Nora Designs was founded by T. Michael Baker, Jr., a formally trained artist & designer. Since the founding of the TMB Custom Models in 1992, where every project is unique and one of a kind for a specific client we have always wanted to add more to the hobby.  Over the years several personal projects were started and later abandoned, pages upon pages of sketches were left to collect dust. To make these ideas finally see the light of day Nick & Nora Designs was established.
